The freshman UNMC postdoctoral scholars are required to attend the UNMC New Employee Orientation program conducted monthly by the Department of Human Resources. New Employee Orientation is a half-day educational program. This provides an overview of basic campus services, the benefits package, employee health/wellness/safety and mandatory compliance policies and focuses on the history and culture of the University.

Postdoctoral scholars are also required to attend the orientation sponsored by the Office of Postdoctoral Education. This hour-long orientation covers information on sponsored programs, the Postdoc Association, intellectual properties, gives an overview of training opportunities and introduces postdocs to the valuable resources they have access to on campus. This program is held once a year during the fall.
